I'm not sure this is something worth getting excited for tbh.

It was rumored that they were going to be using the DS3 engine when updating the game, but I don't believe that for a second. Specially when the game is going to retail for 40€ and if you already own it on PC, you get a 50% discount. So I think it's pretty far fetched they'd remake the whole game in a new engine and sell it for 20€.

So what are we getting? A functional port that we didn't get the first time. It seems pretty clear that they remastered this so they could sell it on switch and new gen consoles for the double dip ez money, and figured the minimal work to get some more money from the PC fans they fucked over couldn't hurt. But I guess it's cool to outsource stuff like this so your main teams can spend all their time on making new games which this will help build hype for.

I guess it comes down to if 60fps and 4k is worth 20€. Maybe the online stuff will be in a better state than in the past, but I have very little hope for it on PC.  /shrug
